Students will develop a set of teaching notes that will accompany the case study they have written. Students will begin working on this assignment in Week 8 and complete the assignment in Week 9. The teaching notes for a case study are an effective way for the authors of the case study to communicate with the professor teaching the case study. The objective of the teaching notes is to assist the course professor in, A. Understanding the reasons the case was written; B. The questions that might arise; and C. The professional or theoretical points that might be raised in the discussion.
The following is a guide that students should use in developing the case study teaching notes.
- Synopsis – The synopsis is a summary of the case study and includes the key issues raised.
- Educational Objectives – The objectives describe the learning points raised by the case study. Generally, the objectives are prefaced with the following statement: At the end of this case study, students should. There should be between 3 and 5 objectives developed.
- Discussion Outline/Questions – This section provides the course professor with guidelines on how to teach the case study. It should include key questions to raise as the case is presented and discussed, with some appropriate suggested answers or discussion points.
- Tips for resolving the case – This section outlines the problem(s) and/or tasks presented in the case study and provides examples of approaches that might be taken, information sources that could be consulted, and points that should be addressed in arriving at a possible solution. This section is useful so that students don’t end up off track and discussing issues that are not relevant to the purpose of the case study.
I have attached the case study to which this will be followed upon.
